I jacked this book from my younger sister while vacationing in Seattle. The pink binding on this bad boy bought me some awkward stares, but that didn't stop me from reading Jane Green's tale of a slightly overweight and unattractive woman in her mid thirties who finally finds the perfect romance, and fullfills her lifelong dream of opening a bookshop. Essentially, this is a story about a British Caucasian woman who gets her 'groove' back. Something about Green's conversational writing style and her incorporation of curse words make the experience of reading this "Chick-Book" more like watching a "Chick-Flick." Despite the real tear-jerking paragraphs about her break ups and her homosexual friend's diagnosis with HIV, this novel is to say the very least, enjoyable. Interestingly, I first learned about CD4 counts in AIDS patients from reading 'Bookends' before learning about these prognostic indicators in Pathology or Medicine.
